Good morning! Before anything I just want to say I was shocked and saddened by the news of Gary Speed's death yesterday, at the age of only 42! For those who don't know, Gary Speed was a footballer, who until yesterday coached the Welsh national team. I'm a Newcastle United fan, and saw Gary play for Newcastle during the 6 years he was at the club, a great player and professional. Very sad indeed.
At Cupcake Craft Challenge today, we have a new challenge chosen by Donna, and a fab one it is too! Colouring On Kraft is the task for this week, something I have NEVER done before, so this was definately a challenge for me!
For my card I used a cute Lili of the Valley stamp, stamped onto Kraft card from A Scrap Affair.
There's a 20-40% SALE at A Scrap Affair but be quick it ends today!
I dug out my old coloured pencils, which haven't seen the light of day for AGES! They're Faber Castell Aquarelle pencils, but I just used then as normal colouring pencils (no water). I have to say I really enjoyed colouring this, very therapeutic in front of the TV. The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley, the paper is K & Co and the ribbon is from Joanna Sheen. I finished by glittering a Cuttlebug Snowflake (thanks Fluff) and adding a button & twine. I'm entering my card for the challenge at:
